My cousin's daughter Eva's birthday (keep track of that list!) is the same day as my mom's (March 20, first day of spring!), but her party (Eva's, not Mom's) was on Saturday. She's turning 1. I scrambled a bit on Friday night, but I came up with this little summer dress out of a t-shirt. I'm sure you can recognize the fabric from a different project. I do realize this is a bad quality photo, but it's all I have. (And I couldn't very well model it!) Maybe someday I'll have a picture of Eva herself modeling it.
I've never fancied myself a painter, and I doubt this will ever change, but I do enjoy messing around a bit, especially when it comes to fabric paint. I was very awed by this beautiful corset, and figured I'd try my own hand at painting a corset. (Corset was made using this tutorial. It's a good tut, but I prefer the style and fit of the corsets I made using my commercial pattern. Still, you can easily alter the design and it's a clever way to make a corset out of what you have lying around. I am finding that spending the money on real boning is worth it in most things, but if plastic bottles are all ya got, use 'em!)
Anyway, on to the pictures. The corset fits Doris rather ill-- what can I say, humans are just more squishable! You can clearly tell the tree design was practically stolen from the other corset. Um... oops?
